In the legislature this week the NDP raised questions about the golden handshake for former Deputy Minister Ron Sapsford.
The Sunshine List revealed Sapsford earned $762,000 last year despite leaving his job in January of 2010.
Sapsford’s payout was recorded under Hamilton Health Sciences despite the government’s promise not to hide government salaries in hospital budgets.
Sapsford had worked at HHS prior to coming to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care in 2005.
Sapsford’s remuneration is listed as $672,916 in salary and $89,152 in taxable benefits.
Sapsford has been working as Chief of Strategy for the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) since last October.
